so ive got an old bolex h16 and a set of rod supports, if i wanted to use a follow focus with some of the switar range of lenses how do i go about matching the gear threads to those lenses? ive seen the zacuto website has a few bits and bobs on there but i dont really know what im doing can somebody take me through it?
thanks!

You'll probably have to buy gear rings for your lenses if they don't fit.

That is a camera and lens combo where you really need to look at your depth of field charts and know your hyper-focal distance.
